DOD/OS RIN: 0790-AL42 Publication ID: Fall 2021 
Title: ●Protection of Privacy and Access to and Amendment of Individual Records Under the Privacy Act of 1974; Technical Amendment 

DoD is making a technical amendment to reinstate appendix A to its Privacy Program regulation at 32 CFR part 310 that was erroneously deleted when the regulation was previously revised on April 11, 2019 (84 FR 14728-14811). The appendix contained a list of blanket routine uses that are incorporated by reference in many DoD Privacy Act systems of records notices (SORNs). DoD had previously published a list of 14 blanket routine uses in an appendix to a prior publication of the DoD Privacy Program regulation on April 13, 2007 (72 FR 18758). In the April 11, 2019 update, all appendices to the prior regulation were removed; however, the appendix containing the DoD blanket routine uses (appendix C) should have remained because numerous DoD SORNs refer to and incorporate the blanket routine uses to support necessary information sharing. This technical amendment seeks to remedy this error by restoring the blanket routine uses as appendix A to part 310. This will provide clear public notice of the existence and ongoing use of the blanket routine uses at DoD. A list of DoD’s blanket routine uses has also continued to be available on the DoD Privacy Program website since the DoD Privacy Program regulation was published in 2019.
